    Mississippi State is cheap in comparison to my second choice, Baylor, and in my opinion, this place and education are worth every single penny.

    Even after you are accepted, each department offers scholarships that you might be eligible for. So if you do not get a full academic or athletic scholarship, keep yourself updated with your department because they usually receive sponsorship and funding as well.

    The cost of attendance is not much. Plus, there are many job and scholarship oppurtunity. I think, financially, going to Mississippi State is a very good idea. A lot of people I have met here are here primarily for the financial aspects.
